Detailed Job Description
As part of a growing, strategic research cluster in human-computer interaction (HCI) and computing accessibility, the School of Information at RIT invites applications for a full-time tenure-track position, at the assistant, associate, or full professor rank, for an appointment beginning fall 2023.
We are seeking a candidate with expertise in one or more of the following or related areas: computing accessibility for people with disabilities or older adults; HCI for artificial-intelligence-based systems (e.g., human AI integration, human AI collaboration, human aware AI, explainable AI, interactive machine learning, and human-in-the-loop learning); or HCI for wearable, mobile, or ubiquitous systems (e.g., physical/tangible computing, human augmentation, augmented mind, embodied interaction, IoT and data analytics, and fabrication). Outstanding applicants in other areas of HCI will also be considered.
Research Environment: RIT is home to the HCI at RIT Research Community (http://hci-research.rit.edu) and the Center for Accessibility and Inclusion Research (CAIR) (http://cair.rit.edu), with over 30 RIT faculty and students actively engaged in research in the fields of human-computer interaction and accessibility. Since 2014, CAIR faculty have secured over $5 million in external research funding support, over 100 peer-reviewed journal and conference publications, and twelve Best Paper and Honorable Mention Awards from major research venues, including the ACM CHI and ASSETS conferences. RIT is a member institution of the Human Computer Interaction Consortium (https://hcic.org/) and a member of the iSchools Organization (https://ischools.org/). Beyond HCI, RIT is an interdisciplinary research hub, with research groups and communities encompassing a range of domain areas, including: RIT's Personalized Healthcare Technology initiative (http://pht.rit.edu), Center for Cybersecurity (http://www.rit.edu/cybersecurity), Center for Human-Aware Artificial Intelligence (http://www.rit.edu/chai), Center for Advancing STEM Teaching, Learning and Evaluation (https://www.rit.edu/castle/), and the Media Arts Games Interaction Creativity (MAGIC) Center (https://magic.rit.edu). In addition, RIT is home to the National Technical Institute for the Deaf (NTID), with over 1,000 Deaf and Hard of Hearing students on the campus.
Applicants should possess a PhD degree in Computer Science, Informatics, Information Science, or a related field by the start date of the appointment, and conduct high-quality, cutting-edge research that shapes the HCI or computing accessibility fields. Applicants should show strong commitment to undergraduate/graduate teaching, demonstrate the ability for innovative research and high-impact publications, and exhibit potential to pursue externally funded research.
We are seeking an individual who has the ability and interest in contributing to RIT's core values, honor code, and diversity commitment.
